In today's Barneys Babble, Simon Doonan reveals that he not only watches Gossip Girl, but that he also love love loves Ed Westwick. Seriously, is anyone impervious to the man's smoldering gaze? "When I met Ed Westwick...last night, I think I came on a bit strong. I couldn't help myself. 'You're the heart and soul of Gossip Girl. You wipe the floor with your cast-mates. You are so over the top and great I just want to scream at the TV screen' etc etc etc." [Barneys Babble]
